1896 Roberts Electric Stanhope- C. E. Roberts of Chicago Steel Screw Co. was an inventor that created this automobile make. This cas has two 2-hp motors directly driving the rear axles. The leather-lined brakes were inside the motor housings. The Stanhope body style was marked by a single bench seat in the middle of the body....not also, the tiller steering. This car gets the same mileage off it's batteries as the Chevy Volt if not the speed!
